Harry Connick Jr. is a man of many, many talents. He’s earned more No. 1 albums than any other artist in U.S. jazz history, he’s appeared in nearly 30 films and TV shows, he helped rebuild homes after Hurricane Katrina, and he locked down former Victoria’s Secret model Jill Goodacre as his wife (and has stayed happily married to her since 1994). But on top of all that, we had no idea HCJ was also hysterical and could practically have his own HBO comedy special. Don’t believe us? Just watch the videos below.
In a feature from American Idol called “Judges Uncensored,” the producers are giving us a behind-the-scenes look at all the shenanigans that happen during Season 13 auditions, which are airing now. The video offers more proof that Harry has an excellent rapport with Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez, as he keeps them laughing with goofy voices and inside jokes.
In one of our favorite videos, Harry pretends to creep on Jennifer Lopez, saying he could stare at her all day and she wouldn’t even notice. In another, Harry has a conversation with himself, showing off a pretty terrible attempt at ventriloquy. “Dude, takes your meds, Harry!” Keith exclaims.
Watch the videos below (all under 30 seconds long) to see Harry get goofy behind the scenes. Are you excited about this year’s panel of judges, or do you think you’re going to miss the drama created by the likes of Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj?
